Our Costa Rica fishing expedition on Lake Arenal can now be
experienced in one of our specialized fishing kayaks. You'll love this
expedition-style fishing excursion, paddling along the calm and picturesque
bays of Lake Arenal in the early morning. We tend to embrace the shallower
parts of the exposed islands and coves to enhance the chances of catching fish.
As you cast your line along the tranquil waters and whispering reeds, you'll likely
be awestruck by the views of the gigantic Arenal Volcano.
This is a great activity for fishing enthusiasts and also
works well for couples and families. We bring our Desafío Explorer boat as
backup so that other family members can simply hang out on the boat and enjoy
the ride while exploring Lake Arenal together.
There are three main types of fish in Lake Arenal that we'll
be targeting: You'll love the playful nature of our Machaca fish (scientific
name: Brycon behreaeon). This fish is best caught from your kayak or from the
shoreline. The rainbow bass (scientific name: Parachromis dovii) lurks in the
high bush areas of the lagoon and is known to put up a strong fight like its
cousin, the black bass. And the trickiest to catch is the Bobo fish (scientific
name: Joturus Pichardi), which, as we've experienced, has a good appetite for
green, yellow, and red lures that have good resistance, but they're definitely
a challenging catch!
They say the early bird catches the worm, but in the case of
fishing on Lake Arenal, the early bird has a greater chance of encountering
some exciting fish near daybreak. Don't miss out on excellent rod fishing in
the Arenal Volcano area!
"Kayak fishing on Lake Arenal is a highly recommended
fishing vacation option in Costa Rica for serious anglers!"
